October 8, 2015

 

So many freakishly creative and engaging ideas are out there for Dry Felting Creatures. I am creating this blog post to help you navigate the miriade of excellent resources and ideas, narrowing them down for a place to begin and jump off from. This blog is completely devoted to dry felting and I will devote a later blog completely to excellent wet felting ideas.
